  • a The mean distance ± SEM nuclei migrated in the first 10 min after the completion of intercalation of that cell. The sample size in number of nuclei is in parentheses.

  • b 42 nuclei were filmed in the unc-83(e1408);klc-2::KASH strain. 20 of them began nuclear migration at a normal time, and the rest failed to migrate.
